Killer:
I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Everything I’ve done coming to fruition in one beautiful moment. My whole life has been leading up to this.

I stare at the fire, reminiscing as I toss the worn pages of my notebooks into the flames. Thinking of the words from my youth, watching as they vanish in the night sky. I was so young and stupid back then. I thought I knew everything, but the reality was I knew nothing at all.

I don’t know what made me this way, but I do know that this is who I am. I’ve felt it in my bones since I was a small child. It’s who I’ve always been.

I’m a killer through and through.

There was a time when I was younger when I would stand in front of my mirror and practice what I was going to say to my victims. I would hold one of my notebooks up to the mirror, stare intensely at my reflection and read out in my scariest voice, “I’m your worst nightmare. I’m the fear you’re afraid to dream about.”

I chuckle aloud. Looking back, I was so stupid. I would tell myself that I was going to be the most prolific killer ever. I didn’t want to be just known, I wanted to be infamous. I wanted to be the person your grandchildren’s children would read about. When people went to double check their locks at night it was going to be because they were afraid of me.
I never had a plan on who I was going to kill or why I was going to kill them. I just knew that was my path in life. It wasn’t until I lost everything that it became clear who my victims were going to be. I was going to ruin them like they ruined me.

I throw another piece of paper into the fire and gently rub my finger along the fading scar against my cheek.

I knew I could be that person. The person people feared, but I was at least smart enough to know I couldn’t just start killing. I needed to do my research first. I wanted to know where everyone else went wrong, that way I didn’t make the same mistakes.

As I began my research, I quickly realized I needed to start small. Nobody would notice a missing wild animal. It would allow me to stay off everybody’s radar, but still satisfy my need to kill. So, that’s what I did. I found pleasure in it. Too bad it got boring so quickly. I wanted something more. I needed to progress to something that allowed me to feel its fear.

So, one day, my foster father mysteriously disappeared. To this day he’s never been found. Don’t worry, he wasn’t a great man. Nobody mourned him for long and some of my foster siblings seemed much happier after he was gone. I was never a suspect, because I was a quiet kid that kept to myself. His wife was and some of the older kids in the home, but ultimately, I walked out of that house and they were never the wiser.

 

Two Days Until Release Day

There are only two days left until this book releases.  I am SO excited, but I’m also kind of terrified.  Like, to the point I didn’t give this book to anyone.  I am ready for the fallout of it, but I think the fear is two-fold.  The first part is not having released something in so long and the other part is that it’s something very different than what I usually write.  Yes, it has romance in it and yes it is a standalone, but it’s on a completely separate path then what people are used to with me.  I like that I can surprise people with what I write.  I like that I write what is in my head and what I want to write, but it is also terrifying.

I’m proud of what I’ve written, but there is always the worry and anxiety when I release a book, because every time I put something out, I’m putting a little piece of myself out into the world.

I’m not sure if that makes sense, if any of this makes sense, ha.  As release day gets close, I tend to babble.  I get anxious and just ramble about everything in my head.  At any rate, I’m VERY excited for everyone to read this book.  As the days tick off, I’ll be waiting anxiously and probably making more swag, hehe.

I’m also having a release day party on Facebook, you can find the link to the event, here. Come play, it will be fun.  Now, I’m going to go worry/think/be excited in my head, ha!  Have a wonderful rest of your day <3

Love, Ivy

It’s been a while

Hi everyone!

I’m sorry it’s been a while, real life came in and decided to take over as it does sometimes.  But, I’m still here.  Since I’ve been gone, I’ve had the chance to see my cover and it’s AMAZING! I love it and can’t wait to share it on the 28th!  I’ve also been to my sisters graduation and my first Harry Styles concert as well, haha. It’s been an interesting few weeks.

Now I’m in the home stretch of putting this book together and I’m trying to spend every minute I can into it, making it perfect.  I haven’t put out a book in such a long time, my nerves are getting the best of me.  But, I’ll be ready!

This week, is edits/re-writes and teaser pull-outs.  I’m so excited!  It’s going to be a good week 🙂

Alright I’m off to get work done, so I can get writing done.  Have a wonderful day!

Love, Ivy.
